Dear Director of Graduate Studies in English,

As organizers of the 4th Annual Intermountain Graduate Conference (IGC), we
would like to remind your graduate students of the upcoming conference to
be held on April 4th at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. We are
pleased to announce that we have received abstracts from over 20
universities in 16 states, as well as a few from overseas. Because of the
great interest and response to this conference, we have opted to make room
for more presentations. We have thus decided to extend the abstract
submission deadline to February 15, 2008.

If you have not had the chance to yet, please inform your graduate students
of this exciting conference held in one of the most spectacular mountain
locations in the United States. For more information about this conference,
the location, and our Keynote Speaker, Teresa Jordan, please visit the
official website at:

             http://www.english.usu.edu/sage/IGC/index.html.

The Conference Committee invites abstracts from graduate students in the
Humanities. We welcome scholarly or creative pa­pers on a wide range of
topics: liminal spaces in literature to cultural and social implica­tions
of new media; from representation and interpretation in art history to
boundaries of gender studies; from social and anthropological history of
urban planning to future territories of ecocriticism; from disputed turf
claims in pop culture to experimental multi-genre works of creative
writing. ALL abstracts will be considered. Papers may be submitted
individually, but panel submissions are also encouraged. Abstracts may be
sent via email to igc.usu_at_gmail.com<mailto:igc.usu_at_gmail.com> and must be
received by 5:00pm on February 15, 2008.

This conference is an occasion to showcase current work being done by
graduate students in all areas of the Humanities and provides a welcoming
and supportive venue for them to share their research and work.

Please find attached a formal call for papers. Should you prefer not to
open an attachment, these documents can also be found on our website. We
invite your graduate students to join us for this exciting event and ask
that you please encourage their attendance.

Best,

Curtis Newbold
